2017 Vintage Cover Scavenger Hunt



Once again for 2017, Bev Hankins has challenged mystery readers to locate books for her 2017 Vintage Cover Scavenger hunt. The object of this hunt to locate and read books with the objects on the covers which are given in one of the two grids given below. There is a Golden Cover Scavenger Hunt for mystery novels which were written before 1960. There is also a Silver Cover Scavenger Hunt for mystery novels written between 1960 and 1989. The challenge participant must locate six or more objects from their chosen period. The adventurous may locate six or more from both periods. A final post listed those titles which you have read must be submitted, and there are Prizes to be won. For more detailed information, see Bev's Rules for this challenge.

 I am entering in the Golden Cover Scavenger hunt, but I may get carried away and try the Silver Cover Scavenger hunt, too.
